Rather than commencing with a typical comedic sketch, this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live opened with a performance by the Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York. The choir sang “Prayer for Ukraine” following an introduction by SNL cast members Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong. The chorus performed behind a table dotted with votive candles that spelled “Kyiv,” Ukraine’s capital. The musical cold open was performed as a tribute to Ukraine amid the ongoing Russian invasion. Watch the performance below.

Last night’s episode of SNL was hosted by John Mulaney. LCD Soundsystem returned as musical guests following their 2017 slot on the show.
